Cambelt & Water pump checks and replacements

Cambelts


This is one item that must not be compromised on. Broken cambelts quite often wreck otherwise perfectly serviceable engines.

Many, but not all, cars use a toothed belt to drive the camshaft(s). This is what you need to do ...

  • Find out if your car does have a cambelt. Check the manufacturer's data or if you are not sure give us a call and we will be happy to advise.
  • If your car is fitted with a cambelt, find out the manufacturer's recommended belt-change interval. Check with Automotive Solutions Greerton for replacement intervals for your car.
  • Get the belt changed at the recommended intervals.
  • If you are uncertain about the service history of the car (as with most Japanese imports), get the belt changed.
  • If you are buying a car that has a cambelt, factor a belt change into the price you pay, unless you have very good (documented) evidence the belt has been recently replaced.
